Paid (in-full) Receipt Template

Create a high quality document online now!

Updated April 21, 2022

A paid (in-full) receipt is a payment receipt that is provided once a financial transaction has been completed and the money owed has been delivered in its entirety (i.e., with no balance due). As opposed to a sales receipt wherein a full breakdown of each item and its cost has been detailed, the paid-in-full receipt is created primarily for the buyer as it simply provides proof of payment. The document should be signed by the recipient once completed.

1 – Save The Payment Receipt To Your Machine

Select one of the caption buttons to the image on this page (“PDF,” “Word,” or “ODT”) to engage the browser dialogue box required to save this file.


2 – Attach This Receipt To The Recipient

Once you open this document turn your attention to the top right-hand side of the receipt. The first blank space on this page will require an identification number that can be utilized by the Payer and Recipient to discuss this document easily. Place this identifier on the space labeled “Receipt #.”    The “Date” when this paperwork is generated should be disclosed to the Payer. Locate the line attached to this label (“Date”) then enter the current month, calendar day, and year on it.      Now identify the Recipient by name and address utilizing the blank spaces “Recipient Name,” “Recipient Address,” and “City/State/ZIP.”     


3 – Document The Payer’s Submitted Payment

The centerpiece of this receipt is the “Payment Information” section. The statement composing this section will need some basic information regarding the payment. First, write out the dollar amount that was received on the first blank space then re-enter it as a number on the blank space attached to the dollar sign.  The full name of the individual who has submitted this payment must be included in this statement after the word “…By.”    The calendar date when the Payer physically delivered this sum should be documented as well. Achieve this by entering this calendar date on the blank line before the words “…For The Following.”   

Utilize the blank lines below the words “…For The Following” to describe the service, product, or paperwork the Client paid for when submitting the concerned funds.   


4 – The Recipient Signature Is A Required Verification Tool

The blank line labeled “Received By” must present the printed name of the individual who has received the payment.    Once the Recipient has printed his or her name on the “Received By” line, he or she must sign the “Signature” line.
